Beauty standards What are they and who gets to have a say on what they are? Everyone’s idea of beauty might be different for themselves or what they find beautiful. It’s both very personal and subjective. In this episode, we get chatty and real about what our idea of beauty was growing up in Sydney, Australia as Asian Australians. We try to unpack what our ideas of beauty are, why they are that way and how it affects the way we view beauty. Were we more drawn to western or Australian ideals of beauty? Or did we have some Asian influences of what beauty meant? And being a woman – the pressure of being beautiful is a whole other thing in itself right?
The main thing we wanted to share was that despite all of these ideals and constructs of what is “beautiful”, and to remind ourselves that that no one is perfect – and that’s OKAY! Hopefully by sharing these silly thoughts, we can all relate that it’s okay to struggle at times with making sense of beauty. What’s important is for us to value ourselves more and learn to FEEL beautiful and love ourselves just the way we are.
We hope you enjoy episode 9! Let us know what your ideal beauty standards were growing up, or anything you want to share in the comments
